Roland Garros Day 4 - Escape for Alcaraz; Give Raducanu time

Wednesday was the day this Roland Garros came alive, with Carlos Alcaraz and Alexander Zverev both being forced to save match point in their five-set victories, and the women’s draw losing Maria Sakkari, all in the space of a few hours. How come Alcaraz ended up having to save match point? And will this match make him more or less likely to win the tournament? Catherine, David and Matt also talk about Emma Raducanu's defeat and the coverage of it, how Novak Djokovic and Rafael Nadal are shaping up, and who might come through the wide open bottom half in the women's draw.
